I have read many threads lately of people rescuing sickly bettas. So many, in fact, that I felt compelled to rescue one myself. So, after Mother's Day dinner yesterday, I headed to Walmart, where the fishies really do need help.
I was actually quite surprised at the decent quality of the betta selection. The water appeared to be quite fresh and the bettas quite healthy. But, due to the number of them in stock, I think the better than average conditions are because they probably just received a new shipment.
However, there was one poor little guy on a shelf all by himself, away from the others. His cup was deplorable! I knew without a doubt that this was the fish I was looking for.
Look at the poo in that cup!
Sad little guy!
